Each year, the Human Aging Project will work to make research funding available for new HAP scholars according to the availability of funding. Awards will be offered through a call for proposals and an internal application process that targets a specific area of aging research. Applicants targeted are mid-level career faculty in the fields of engineering, basic biology, bioengineering, and clinical translation that wish to develop a project and/or skill set related to aging. Special consideration will also be given to those who work in these named disciplines that focus on health disparities and ways to overcome these disparities. A two page letter of intent that includes background and specific aims, brief approach, and budget will be requested initially. Send programmatic inquiries to [email protected].
